Styling Skirts This Season: How To Do It!

Skirts never go out of fashion, although they might change in length and cut. This season, there are so many skirt types that are on-trend. This is great for freshening up our wardrobes, but how are we meant to know how to perfectly style each type?

How to wear the accordion, mid-length skirt

If you’ve bought an accordion skirt, it’s important that it’s the right fit. You want it to sit comfily at your waist, but also hang in a way that the pleats don’t look stretched. These skirts look great if you want to downplay bigger thighs and hips, as the pleats will create an illusion that slims down the lower half of your body.

The great thing about an accordion skirt is that it can be dressed up or down. For a chic look, go for a v-neck polka dot top with cap sleeves or for something more casual, try a graphic tee and cropped jacket.


How to wear the asymmetric skirt

Asymmetric skirt styles look great for events over party season. Cut short at the front with a longer hemline at the back, the asymmetric skirt is perfect for showing some leg without revealing too much. Avoid going for asymmetric tops with this skirt style — it’s too much — instead create a cool contrast by pulling on a simple cami or square-neck, going out top. This sort of skirt is perfect as part of a ball or prom dress for a formal event.

When it comes to accessories, slip in some hoop earrings and choose whether you want to rock flats or heels, depending on the tone of the occasion.

How to wear the A-line skirt

An A-line skirt is a classy style that elegantly flares out just slightly from the waistband for a gorgeous drop that suits all body types — especially pear-shape ladies. A-line skirts wonderfully highlight the tiniest part of your waist, so we recommend flaunting this outline with an off-the-shoulder bodysuit or simple crop top.  

How can you complement the elegance of the A-line? Keep your shades subtle but stand-out — think forest green, royal blue or deep purple. Then, match with block heels, a clutch and just a few pieces of jewelry.

How to wear the denim skirt

A denim skirt is a wardrobe staple. You can get these in a range of hem lengths and denim washes — so go with what you feel comfortable in.

Keep your look relaxed when wearing a denim skirt. Think casual, crew-neck tees, cool graphics, fun colors and quirky prints. Pair with a pair of white sneakers, wear your hair in a messy bun and keep jewelry to a minimum.

How to wear the gypsy skirt

The style of the gypsy skirt is a timeless female fashion piece. Long, floaty and fun; all body shapes look great in this skirt style. But how do you perfectly flaunt it in 2018?

This sort of style has a Sixties/Seventies look that you need to get on board with. Go for psychedelic colors like bright oranges, greens, yellows and pinks and pair with retro fabrics like velvet and chiffon. Tassels are obviously a great addition to a top for this outfit and bell sleeves look amazing with gypsy skirts, promising that you’ll embody the Sixties/Seventies vibe perfectly. Finalize the ideal gypsy skirt outfit with chunky bangles, mood rings, hoop earrings, and sandals!


How to wear the high-waisted, pencil skirt

When heading to a work party or formal occasion, there’s nothing gets you mentally and physically prepared like a high-waisted pencil skirt. Flattering and easy to style, choose this in a neutral shade — like beige, black or grey — and wear with a three-quarter sleeve dress shirt.

Don’t need to be so formal? Trumpet-sleeve tops create an eye-catching contrast with the fitted style of a pencil skirt, while the high-waist feature lets you combine this style with cropped tops without feeling too exposed. Accessorize depending on the level of formality: a few simple pieces for a professional event, and bigger pieces with coloured stones for more informal occasions. Ankle-strap heels always look amazing with this skirt style.

How to wear the skort

The skort style has been a big fashion craze this year. It merges shorts and skirts into one impressive clothing piece. Usually sitting at your mid-thigh with an asymmetric appearance, the skort is no longer a skirt restricted to casual settings, which means you can flaunt it the next time you head out for dancing and partying with your girlfriends.

The skort suits all body types. Go for a design with a frill and pair with a long-sleeve, chiffon shirt or go for a clean-cut style that you can wear with a sweetheart neckline tee. If you want to really rock this fashion trend, pull on a plain, netral-shade v-neck top to draw people’s eye-line to your skort. Everything from wedges and pumps to sneakers and stilettos look incredible with a skort — so don’t hold back.
